    Don’t encourage him Opal he come’s up with enough excuses on his own.

    That explains it…my dad was the laziest man I ever met. He was a plumber and had a truck full of pipe elbows. Always had a good reason not to use them, too.

    When I was a kid the family lawn mower was manual – today we’d call it better for the environment.

    Sore elbows! And there’s your second reason, fulfilling Opal’s little homespun nugget of wisdom. Cleverly done!
    Reminds me of an old Wizard of Id strip— Bung: A penny for your thoughts!" Wizard (quoting): “A fool and his money are soon parted.” Bung: “That’s not bad. Here’s your penny.”

    Who?

    @Imanartisthoney
    Huh?


    Instead of just asking, like you two did, I Googled the name and found out:

    1. That Imanartisthoney misspelled the name — it’s Matt Stutzman (no fourth-letter “n”); and

    2. He’s an archer without arms from Chicago.

    OOPS! I goofed — I meant to say he’s from Iowa. I don’t know where “Chicago” came from.

    Anyway, he is an archer, and he was a member of the 2012 U.S. Paralympic team.

    Hey Earl? Ever hear of putting gas in the lawn mower so you can mow the lawn and get the job done? You’re turning into Andy Capp other than you don’t drink beer.

    I guess Opal doesn’t believe in equal rights…

    Was on vacation last week and the lawn was fine


    Always twice as much work after a vacation and by last night I was beat and really needed a night off


    Of course yesterday was the first sunny day this week and one look at the back yard told me how much my lawn enjoyed all that moisture


    Mowed the back yard, it was looking like a jungle, but it was ME that ran out of gas before I got to the front yard


    I’m off again Monday night, the front lawn will still be there
